What's on the Easel

Painting Inspirations

Sometimes the littlest thing that you see will inspire a painting. I was walking past a shed at my local farm store and I noticed that they replaced the the door on the shed with a new door . It was bright and new raw wood so I took a photo with my Iphone and here's what happened.

Sunset Regatta on Pigeon Cove

Sunsets can be brilliant and can be painted brilliantly ! As in brightly and almost unbelievable colors .How often do we as artists see a sky and think . Wow , I'd love to paint that ! This painting is meant to pair with Sails on Pigeon Cove , these are both only 6x6 studies and are fun to paint and I try to not be specific but use the color and the light to tell my story.
